Fire does not really make much of a specific sound so you should better describe what you call a "burning sound". Crackling and potentially smelling means arcing. By far the most predominant reason is the flash capacitor having progressive breakthroughs, preventing it from reaching operating voltage and consequently keeping the camera waiting for ...

I do interior photography occasionally. I'd like to replace my Canon M50 with the iPhone 13 Pro Max but I'm concerned about an external flash. You should be. The rolling electronic shutters in most phone cameras eliminates using flash at all, since it lowers the camera's flash sync speed down to roughly 1/30s or slower (on my iPhone8, it was 1/25s). It's ...

I do not know anything specific that directly connects to any phone. Probably the most realistic solution is to use continuous light. There are many affordable solutions. Even a normal desktop lamp. For a moment I was thinking that an external flash with an optical slave could work; after all, you can use it on a DSLR camera to some extent, even with a TTL ...

"Weird clicking noise" sounds like a flash capacitor breakthrough. The exact sound would be the typical charge whine (assuming it is audible at all) going up but then with a hard popping noise jumping lower in pitch again repeatedly, never reaching the voltage necessary for triggering the flash. That's a single circuit element that may or may not ...

The flashing battery icon is an error message. I suspect it is just a flash problem. The camera needs to be repaired but it would be cheaper to buy a replacement for about $50 on eBay or from someone locally.
